There are times when I think that our local Giantess is much more trouble than she is worth... This feeling is felt ten times over when she does certain... Braindead things. For instance, when greeted with the knowledge that myself and Akash had acquired the Mon, a seemingly magical and powerful artifact, that absolute MORON threw the damn thing off the ship! It's lucky we were still in port and could grab it before it sank into the murky port, although Akash did terrify the crew with his next act... myself included.
It was like nothing I had seen before, Akash rose up out of the port in a torrent of wind and water, but this time he had a black aura outlining him, and his veins turned inky black. I'm not superstitious and I don't spook very easy, but this shook me to my core, as well as Sitara. After Akash finished his little show, both Sitara and myself agreed that Akash shouldn't use the Mon until we have a better clue of how it works... This certainly upset him, but we can't give in just because of his ego and pride. Thankfully Sitara was reasonable and took my side. It might cost me a bonus, but for my safety, the select crew members who seem like good people, and Akash's safety as well, I can spare some extra money.
Probably the most amusing part of all this was the Giantess then getting upset at that display and threatening to leave! The nerve of her, to actually throw something of great value, that was not hers to pass judgement on, and then refuse to stay on the same ship as it!? I wish Akash had actually been able to blast her off the damn ship, perhaps put her into our mindset. and yet our ever gracious Captain convinced her to stay, not sure why or what she has really offered, other than serve as an easy target for attackers that is... Well I guess she does have some merit then.
Probably the most infuriating thing about this whole Mon situation is that the Giantess could actually use the damn thing... and yet I couldn't... All she did was convince some forest animals to come near her, probably just though that she was tree though, as tall as she is. I tried to use the Mon to hypnotize Mesi, but nothing happened. Mesi meanwhile empowered her spear work and it was quite impressive. Interestingly enough, Sitara couldn't seem to use the Mon either. Akash was upset and sulking, and didn't provide much help with how he uses his own magic.
I've kept the Mon in my quarters, as no one else was particularly keen on it and I reasoned to them that I posed the least threat with it considering I couldn't use it. A bit of a half truth as I have been trying to get the damned thing to work but I can't get it! I pride myself at being good at what I do, whatever it is, and yet this Mon eludes me. Even the Giantess could make it work but I can't?! It's kept me up for the past couple of nights, but we are going to test it tomorrow and I intend to make it work.
Results! Finally results! The test sessing went almost annoyingly well as I realized the mistake I made was one of word choice, although perhaps thought choice is more accurate of a description.
